How Long Must my Hair Be to Conceal my Hair Transplant Sutures?

6/30/2009 12:51:20 PM


I am considering a hair transplant within the next 12 months. Currently I cut my hair to zero or one clipper setting. How long must I keep my hair (clipper setting) to prevent my stitches from showing on the back of my head after the procedure?


In order to conceal your stitches after surgery, you'll want to consider growing your hair on the sides and back of your head to approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch. This way, nobody will be able to tell you had anything done by looking at the hair transplant donor region.
